This week I bought a new house. I wasn't even looking, how did this happen? As you can see by the view from our new place we're not in Paddington any more Toto. It was the water view, big yard and the prospect of an exciting new renovation project that seduced me. Paddington is still my home until next year and it will be with a heavy heart that I say goodbye. All the same I'm just about busting out of my skin at the prospect of renovating my lovely new Sydney sandstone and weather board beach house.

Luxury bath manufactor Vicotria & Albert is releasing a new design called Toulouse, based on french double ended bath designs from the 1860's. Until their press release came across my desk this morning I had never head of this supplier. Their website is well worth a visit it contains endless inspiration.
I once lived in a house without a bath and I must attest I only lasted a year. I could not do without my nightly soaking ritual.

One of my readers, Tina sent me these images of her luxurious Swedish home. Tina has her own blog www.signedbytina.blogspot.com which details her passion for interior design. She has spent the past two months renovating her stunning apartment and is still in the process of decorating. As you can see from the pictures Tina has a love of wallpaper and texture. Much of the artwork throughout the home was created by her (what a clever girl).

I have spent a wonderful relaxing week up in Byron enjoying a family reunion and christening my son. While exploring Bangalow I came across Heaths Old Wares a stylist idea of heaven. I was infatuated by his selection of scrabble pieces in an array colours, so much so that these made it home with me.

At the moment I am working on a lovely place in Centennial Park. It's still in the early stages and we are waiting on more finishing touches but I'm overcome by the beauty of the lead light windows in the home. Normally I am not a fan of lead lights however these are stunning and I used them as my jumping off point for the entire decor scheme.
Please excuse my poor quality camera phone pic!
